John Lewis Baby New Wool Pillow
Great until washed
Purchased this a few months ago and have washed it twice. Followed washing instructions but was very lumpy. After reading reviews I can see that I haven't been the first. Great idea as I wanted something natural as my little girl gets hot easy but after washing it can't be terribly comfortable for her.

good until you wash it
We wanted a natural fibre pillow. This was one of the only options we could find. It was perfect until it was washed (label states it is washable). We bought a second one and took extra care when it had to be washed due to an accident. It still came out lumpy! Not great for a children's pillow as they need to be washable.

I purchased this one week ago and unfortunately had the need to wash the pillow. I followed the care instructions but the pillow dried lumpy. I noticed I am not the only one with this problem and therefore would not recommend as I am having to replace after 1 week of use. It is very disappointing

Brilliant pillow..until you wash it.
This pillow was brilliant and my toddler was very happy with it. Until it needed to be washed. Sadly my daughter was sick one night and everything in her bed inc her needed to be washed.
I followed the care label, and washed it careful. However it has dried lumpy. It will have to be replaced.
Great pillow, just annoyed I need to replace it.

Nice comfy pillow
We bought this pillow to go with the duvet and it's perfect for keeping our son cool with the natural fibres.

Washes badly. Disappointed.
I bought this pillow a while ago. My three year old loved it but as soon as I washed and dried it (as per directed and with a wool detergent) the wool inside separated and clumped up. It's very disappointing as I was hoping to hand this down to a younger sibling and now have to buy another (but not this one!)

Didn't wash well
It was a lovely pillow until our child caught a stomach bug. The wool inside separated and was lumpy and uneven after one wash, and was no good thereafter. The care instruction on the pillow indicated that it was machine washable with a delicate cycle, so we had done just that with Ecover delicate washing liquid. DIsapointed we made a verbal enquiry at our local John Lewis store and was told that we should have hand washed it! As you can see however, the web page for this pillow states it is machine washable. On this occasion, we feel let down by John Lewis as we wouldn't have bought this pillow had it not been machine washable and the information at the shop and one on website conflict with each other.
